What We Believe
God is the creator and ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three manifestations: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are coequal and are one God.
Genesis 1:1, 26-27, 3:22, Matthew 28:19, 1 Peter 1:21
Jesus Christ is the Son of the living God. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all men by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to heaven’s glory and will return again to earth to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
Matthew 1:22-23, Isaiah 9:6, Titus 2:13
Man is created in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. He is the highest object of God’s creation. Although man has tremendous potential for good, he is marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called “sin.” This attitude separates man from God.
Genesis 1:27, Psalm 8:4-6, Romans 3:23, Romans 6:23, Isaiah 59:1-2
Man was created to exist everlasting. He will either exist eternally separated from God by sin or in union with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life. Heaven and hell are places of eternal existence.
John 3:16, 1 John 2:25, Romans 6:23, Revelation 20:11-15
Salvation is a gift from God to mankind. Man can never make up for his sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by grace in Christ Jesus as God’s offer of forgiveness can man be saved from sin’s penalty. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith.
Romans 6:23, Ephesians 2:8-9, Galatians 3:26
Because God gives man eternal life through Jesus Christ, the believer is secure in salvation for eternity. Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self-effort of the Christian.
John 10:29, 2 Timothy 1:12-13, 10:10-17
The Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ, He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, convicting and guiding of what is right. The Christian must seeks to live under his control daily.
It is the promise of Jesus Christ, sent by the Father, to empower the church to be a witness to the Gospel throughout the whole earth. One of the signs of baptism in the Holy Spirit is speaking in other tongues, along with various other gifts.
2 Corinthians 3:17, Ephesians 5:1, 1 Corinthians 2:12, Acts 2:1-8
The Bible is God’s word to all people. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the living source of truth for Christian believers. It is inspired by God. It is truth without any mixture or error.
2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:20, Proverbs 30:5, Psalm 119:105
Baptism by immersion symbolizes the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus and is your public declaration that you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior. Baptism does not save you, but shows the world that you have already been saved. While baptism is not required for salvation, it is a biblical command and demonstrates your love and obedience to Christ.
John 3:1-8, 1 Peter 3:20-22, Matthew 28:19-20
The Lord’s Supper
The Lord’s Supper is an ordinance given to all believers by Jesus Christ to remember His sacrifice for us and to symbolize the new covenant. The elements of bread and wine are symbols of Christ’s broken body and shedding by His own blood. Communion is not a means of salvation. Rather, it is a testament of a believer’s faith in the atoning work of the cross.
Matthew 26:17-30, 1 Corinthians 11:23-26, Luke 22:14-22
Divine healing is illustrated in the life and ministry of Jesus and is included in the commission of Jesus to His disciples. It is given as a sign which is to fellow believers. It is also a part of Jesus’s work on the cross and one of the gifts of the Spirit.
Psalms 103:22-23, Mark 16:17-18, James 5:14-16
There will be a Final Judgment in which those who reject Christ will be raised and judged at the end of the millennium, known as the Great White Throne Judgment. Those not found written in the Book of Life will be consigned to the everlasting punishment in the lake, which is burning with fire and brimstone, which is the second death — together with the devil, his angels, the beast, and false prophets.
Revelation 19:20, Matthew 25:31-46, Revelation 21:8
We’re more than a weekly worship service. We’re a church family committed to engaging the future of our youth and the community around us locally and globally.
